Default the search for the perfect jasmine flavor...

i've tried AF jasmine, and i believe AW jasmine (it was the first time i had ever smoked/seen/thought about buying a hookah) and i'm looking to see if anyone can help me out? AF jasmine was great, but it wasn't strong at all. i don't remember how AW jasmine tasted like. i want a good jasmine flavor that is REALLY strong, and has a decent amount of juice.

my ideal shisha tobacco cut is: fine/medium, wet but not dripping, and minimal stems. pretty much exactly like an AF cut.

i would try nakhla jasmine but nakhla has never had enough juice/smoke for me...

also, i know this sounds dumb but wtf is rose supposed to taste like. i want to try it but idk which brand to pick up, and i would think it would taste like eating flowers or something...i would think that rose would be used primarily as a mixer.

it seems as though most of the nakhla i open lately is not the same dry stuff i used to think it was a couple years back. give it a shot, i haven't tried it but it just seems like most of nakhla's flavors are pretty natural.
as far as rose, i think i'll just puke now.

+1 on the rose

i ordered grape at a hookah bar i went to one time and the hookah had ghosted the rose flavor so bad that we couldnt smoke it. we left like 5 minutes into the bowl, there was no grape flavor at all, just tasted like soap and flowers. ugh. and i have no idea what brand of tobacco they used, but they had a bunch of boxes of AF in a glass window behind the counter so i figure thats what they were using

Have you tried Fumari's Jasmine? Can't say how good, if any it good it is, due to that I've never had it. It's merely a suggestion

fumari's jasmine is very floral, very potent flavor, not sweet, and heavy in smoke.

I have gotten nothing but pure jasmine flavour and huge clouds from Nakhla Jasmine.

Hands down the best floral tobacco.

Sir, Nakhla Jasmine will stain your hookah with the ultimate flavor of running through a flowery meadow on a bright spring shiny day and feeling the whisper of breezes stroke your mouth and nose with unprecedented power and glory.

Do it. Now.

I'll have to pick up some Nakhla Jasmine. Is it sweet? I'd love a sweet one.

I enjoy my floral flavors.

Lol. Yes I would
You could try... I believe it's Star Starlight, it's floral... but I'm pretty sure it isn't Jasmine.
However, I believe Eric was working on a Jasmine flavor when I was at his lounge.
If I wasn't broke, I'd buy a whole bunch of Nakhla and decide where I stand on the bandwagon.

i thought i'd bring back this thread and tell everyone that nakhla jasmine is the god of all jasmines. mixed with about 1/4 tsp of vegetable glycerin, it tastes a bit sweeter and it provides extremely dense smoke and amazing flavor.

AF Jasmine is the best I have smoked. I grew up drinking Jasmine tea, it is NOT supposed to be strong. Or overly floral...

Never got into the Rose tobacco.

As for Jasmine, I'd AF's is the most realistic in terms of tone, etc. Jasmine on its own is not really that potent.

I haven't tried most jasmines, but I strangely did enjoy al amir's take on jasmine (might have been lemon jasmine though). Even stranger is that I didn't like most of the al amirs.
